Samsung Wants Your Tv To Talk To Your Fridge

And it's giving a lift to a San Fernando Valley firm, Transit TV, http://mathewsawbl.hazblog.com which holds the contract with MTA. For bus rider and Los Angeles native Emmett Cutler, 56, who takes the Broadway line through downtown L.A., the TVs can be a diversion during his daily commute. "You have to get up real early to catch the news at home, and this shows you a variety of things, including weather, maps and news for your area," Cutler said during a bus ride last week. "I like it." PHOTOS: Celebrities by The Times It's been a bumpy ride for Transit TV, which began installing TV monitors in Metro buses about six years ago. The original owner, a Canadian company that publishes the Toronto Star newspaper, spent tens of millions of dollars outfitting buses in several markets, including Los Angeles, Chicago and Orlando, with the technology and TV screens. The Canadian company put its cash-strapped U.S. subsidiary, Transit TV, into Chapter 7 bankruptcy four years ago. <br>Source: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/cotown/la-et-ct-knbc-tv-bus-20131029,0,2936438.story

As many have noticed, these interviews are awkward. When Matt Lauer asked in August why Brown was putting out "negative" Twitter messages -- really? we're worried about his Twitter account here? -- the singer dodged by replying, "Uh, it's not my music." And then he was invited to perform a song for a throng of adoring fans crowding Rockefeller http://bushpdxd.wikispaces.com Center . Whether these interviews are good TV is beside the point. What's relevant is that network TV shows are gladly allowing themselves to be drafted into the PR machine of an entertainment figure with known violent tendencies. <br>Source: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/tv/showtracker/la-et-st-chris-brown-is-it-time-for-a-tv-boycott-20131028,0,6052334.story

Synacor's Michael Bishara to Participate in TV Everywhere Panel at Inaugural NYC Television Week, October 28-30, New York City

It hired hundreds of workers and opened offices in Los Angeles and New York to work on the project. The field of players competing for in-home entertainment audiences is increasingly crowded. Apple Inc, Google Inc, Sony Corp and Microsoft Corp are jockeying for position to own the living room through TV, while Netflix Inc and Amazon.com Inc's streaming video services have millions of subscribers. Verizon already has a streaming product as part of a joint venture with Redbox, which focuses mostly on streaming movies and not on TV shows, according to its website. That product competes with Netflix. Intel has struggled to reach content deals with media companies even though it offered to pay sizeable premiums over traditional cable rates. Doubts about Intel's commitment to the venture emerged in June after newly appointed Chief Executive Brian Krzanich warned he was taking a cautious approach to television, which is far from the company's core business of chip manufacturing. <br>Source: http://news.yahoo.com/intel-looking-exit-tv-business-report-135731035--sector.html

TV channels, much like cable and satellite TV providers already do, to deliver them over the Internet through a set-top box. A company executive in February confirmed the project , which is being helmed by former BBC Web video head Erik Huggers. Originally scheduled to launch by the end of this year, the system in September was said to be delayed until 2014 due to lack of funding. Under development by a 350-person team, OnCue would use a massive back-end server to record all aired programming local, national, and international and store it in the cloud for at least three days. Users could then simply turn on the box to watch any show or movie that aired in the last few days, with the added ability to rewind and fast forward without a local DVR connection. <br>Source: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2426560,00.asp

Afterall, when you can easily plug an Xbox or Apple TV into your tube and subscribe to everything Hulu and Netflix have to offer for less than $20 a month, how can Comcast up-sell you on premium cable? Comcast believesXfinity TV Go is the answer. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the list of launch channels focuses on news, sports and children's programming; if you're a news or sports junkie and spend lots of time out of the house, the ability to stream video directly to your phone or tablet is pretty alluring. And site if you're a kid-toting parent who uses your iPhone as a pacifier, Comcast has you covered. They effectively turned your tablet into a secondary TV, albeit one limited to 35 channels. (The full list available at launch includes BBC World News, beIN Sport, beIN Sport Espanol, Big Ten Network, CNBC, CNN, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Disney XD, ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN 3, ESPN Deportes, ESPN News, ESPNU, FOX Business Channel, FOX News Channel, FOX Sports 1, FX, FXX, Golf Channel, HLN, MSNBC, Nat Geo, Nat Geo Wild, NBC Sports Network, Pac-12 and its six regional networks, and Willow TV.)
